  •  The Wake STEM Early College High School is a small public school of choice; a joint project between the Wake County Public School System, NC State University, and NC New Schools.  STEM is the theme of our school’s program in addition to our identity as an early college.  Early college means students take college courses at NCSU as well as the courses required to earn a high school diploma over a five year period.  Exploration of the Grand Challenges for Engineering is a common instructional focus that extends through various courses in our program.  Because engineering involves so many areas of math and science it is a great scaffold on which to build a STEM education.
